This is a painting I have just finished and sent to our nephew's family in Lawrence, Kansas. I have never painted a horse before and you ask why now? This is painted from a photograph taken of Molly by her brother three months before her stroke. At 17, there was no way to tell what lay before her.
We can never know the future, but when I saw this image the first time I was moved by her determination to confront life. She has a beautiful spirit, and she improves daily. We love Molly and what she teaches us, to embrace life.
